Nothing too exciting, but a big deal for me. I've always had the beginnings for OBEs, massive intense electrical buzzing feelings waking up in the middle of the night paralyzed, its happened probably 100+ times.

Last night i stayed up last 4am, and i was thinking to myself before heading to bed, this is perfect conditions. Very tired but yet my mind is still awake.

Soon as i closed my eyes, i woke up paralyzed, intense buzzing got scared as usual, then calmed down, and tried to lift out and separate, and BAM i was totally out and i was sliding to the right and down diagonally and was thinking to myself "Thank you" just before i was about to go through the floor/wall in an instant i was back in my body and out of it, could still feel the buzzing, but was able to move. Took me another hour or so before i could go back to sleep after that lol.

Hey! good for you! I have that intense energy experience once in a while also, but never really got out during it. I didn't know then that it was an opportunity to have an OBE.

thanks dirk, I've always been too scared to try anything other than trying to move or make it end. But lately I've been actually kind of trying to separate. But I guess I'm still to scared and attached to my body to get very far lol.

I find almost every time like clockwork the more tired I am, especially after staying up very late and totally exhausted it get these paralyzing/buzzing episodes.

You're welcome quick. There is some fear to get over obviously, mostly about death.

I've listened to the first 2 CD's of the MI set. The first one was just Bob talking about his experiences. The second takes you to I think focus 10, he just counts to 10 as the sounds change, but he holds you there for a really long time, like over a half an hour I think. I found myself towards the end with my mouth agape, but not snoring, breathing normally through my nose. I was on my back since that was more comfortable. I didn't get out of my body, but it was just supposed to be a relaxation session anyway. I think in the others he will take me through different conditions to eventually an OBE on command. That would be cool. I think his technique is to roll out of his body. In my experience, I just sit up like I'm getting up from bed. I certainly hope this is good training. I find it much easier for me to learn experientially rather than from books. I'm a "hands-on" kind of guy really, though I read books obviously, but I just couldn't bring myself to read a book about getting out of the body for some reason in spite of the fact that I bought it. I guess I have some kind of disconnect or something. Oh well, we all learn differently to some extent.

Oh, and I have found that the in-ear monitors are much better than ordinary headphones. These are like ear buds, but they go inside the ear canal, making for excellent isolation from outside sounds. Before, when I listened to my delta CD, I'd be awake the whole time. Now, with these new monitors, I typically zonk out during that same CD. You can see them here.

Quick,
I have those buzzing vibrations, too. I will also get a tremendous thumping around the heart chakra when the vibrations get intense enough to get out. If I can manage to not freak out during all of this, I can have a conscious exit. I've heard that the vibrations tend to go away with practice.

This morning I tried the relaxation CD from the set again and had a good experience. My body really does go into a deep state of relaxation and mind stays awake, but my body doesn't fall asleep for a long time, more towards the end of the session. I don't know how many times I should listen to each CD before moving on to the next one. I guess twice is enough? I think this is an old set of tapes that have been transferred to CD and was apparently part of some workshop that the MI used to have. Bob doesn't do the energy conversion box, or the resonant tuning for example, during the sessions. I did feel deeply relaxed afterwards though, like I had received some very deep rest. I think it's time to try the next CD in the series.

I wonder when the added the energy conservation box? I think twice would be enough. I usually find a couple in a set that I like most and I keep listening to those.

Thank you so much for that! Yes, I'm 47 today. I find myself on this birthday more deeply in love than I ever have been in my life, in better physical shape than in many years, and more hopeful of a brighter future than just a few months ago. I guess things are looking up for now.

This morning I listened to the same CD again and must have popped out of my body at some point because I had an erection towards the end of the session. Bob Monroe found that men do that after coming back to their bodies. Why, I don't know. I'm going to try lying on my side next time and see if getting out is easier. It has been that way in the past.

Yes, Bob did discuss the sexual aspects of his out of body experiences, didn't he? Are all of the OBE cd's done at focus 10?

Oh, I don't think of erections as necessarily sexual. That organ needs to be engorged daily to nourish the tissues there.

I don't know. On this CD, he counts to 10, but doesn't say anything about focus 10. I assume that's what it is though. I haven't listened to the other CD's in this set though.

In the Gateway Voyage CD sets, Wave II takes you to focus 12, Wave V takes you to focus 15, and Wave VI takes you to focus 21.

And all this time I thought my nightly erections just meant I needed to go pee.

Dirk - which workshop did you take while at the Monroe institute. I think I'm going to go next summer for one. They have quite a few on their website.

I did the Gateway Voyage, the first one you have to take to qualify for the others.

Yeah, I used to think that too about having to get up to go the bathroom in the middle of the night, but now I think that our need to do that brings us back to our bodies, hence the erection.

I listened to the same CD, but I rested on my side this time and promptly fell asleep. sigh...try again tomorrow.

I tried the next CD in the set, called "Condition A". It's just hemi-sync sounds with the guide post jingle, and then Bob's voice "remember your purpose" every 20 minutes or so. This CD is supposed to keep you in the borderland between sleep and wakefulness, but I found it boring. It didn't do anything for me, though I will try it again. I wasn't feeling well this morning, so I probably couldn't relax very deeply.

I don't feel like I'm in the border between sleep and wakefulness unless I'm seeing flashes of dream images. At least that's how I think about it.

I hope you feel better, Dirk. I've been on the border of being sick for so long, it's rediculous.

I get into this nice yummy energy state during meditation and he starts his whinning and then I have to get up to let him out, and if I don't, he keeps it up for really long. I was agitated this morning on top of this and it got to me. I think it had something to with my dreams last night.

I'm sure you'll find it very beautiful there in the spring. There should be lots of flowers out around then. It's very quiet there in the foot hills of the mountains, or what passes for mountains here. Bring a foam cushion to sleep on.

Oh, you need to come a day ahead of time in order to rest and get over jet lag. It's important apparently, according to Paul's book. I'd fly in on Friday and get a hotel for the night, then drive down on Saturday morning.

Thanks, Dirk. When you have a chance, let me know what airport is closest to the seminar, so I can check out the travel.

I did think about Paul's issues with his travel schedule and his falling asleep during the first sessions. At that time of the year, I will be really tired from tax season, as well as from any jet lag. But I think, what the heck, I have six days in the seminar. Any info that you can give me will be welcomed.

Oh, you'll get plenty of rest during the Gateway Voyage. You listen to hemi-sync for about 4 or more hours per day. They also have a "sleep processor" that runs all night if you want to listen to it. I couldn't sleep very well at all during my week there, but I didn't need that much apparently.

I listened to the next CD in the set, and I would have had an OBE except for the fact that my mouth fell open and I couldn't breathe, so I had to shake myself awake to get out of it. I need another set of those earphones that go in the ear canal so I can lie on my side. That's always been a downside to listening on my back.

I fell asleep after meditation this morning. I got into my energy state, tried to maintain it, but kept falling into it, then out of it. Several of my chakras "light up" during these events, and sometimes I can see my third eye too, but my root chakra is the one that is most uncomfortable. It lights up so strongly that it really bothers me. I remember sitting on the edge of the sofa out of my body, thinking about how I much I want a passionate loving relationship and how what I have isn't like that. I also remember some lucid dreaming, something about cooking breakfast. I think a woman was cooking rice and some kind of dark fruit like prunes. Not something I would eat, but whatever.

My lucid dreams last night were strange too. I dreamed I got too close to some diseased people and had to be quarentined. I had these red spots on my arms I recall. Nothing made any sense to me last night. Oh well...

Last night I was removing parasites from my left hand. There was a kind of a worm with a tapered cylinder for a shell embedded in my left middle finger that was tough to pull out. Then there were three crawfish in my left pinky finger. I've had parasites before, but this was weird.

It sounds similar to things I've heard described as power intrusions. Illnesses look like insects. I sometimes (very rarely) see such things if I am in an altered state.

Yes, they are astral parasites, just like we have physical ones sometimes. I've had them before. My physical left hand is perfectly healthy though. I would love to be more conscious during OBE's and have a good look over my body to get rid of any others I may have. I don't think of them as "power intrusions", which I don't know what that means, but they are just astral bugs sucking whatever juice out of me that they can. I don't think these things have any deeper meaning than that.

The crayfish were under my skin, and the worm with the shell left a pretty good size crater in my finger after I pulled him out. I think the more conscious I become, the most I can deal with this stuff. I'm just dealing with so much other stuff now that I don't have the energy to focus on this very often.

The concept of power intrusion works like this. Some people can control astral beasties and set them against another person, eventually causing illness in the victim. I assume you were in your astral body at the time?

Thanks for that SC. I agree. I've had a cricket embedded in my astral butt, and I've had a pear-shaped entity embedded in my lower abdomen. I've never thought of them as coming from someone else, but I suppose that's possible.

This is all very interesting. I have only seen spiders, and have not been attacked so it is good to know.
I don't travel much anymore, anyhow.

You'd be right about that. She is in fact showing a great deal of creative ability and interest. She wants very much to do glass, although she is intimidated by the heat (who wouldn't). She likes the idea of working glass at the torch (beads, etc) and that would certainly be more her speed for now (small fingers).

....And by dropping a piece on the floor you now know what we mean when we say "that's a floor model." Some of the best pieces were the ones we saved from the floor. There is redemption even in these things.

Well, I can't say I have seen parasites like you have described, but I have been aware of things attached to me. Sort of like how a lamphry (sp?) attached to a shark, hitching a ride and getting food. I suspect that these are lower level kinds of organized energies.....with their own form of consciousness, however limitted they may be.

I have known some real energy sponges in my life, and they were humans. I don't think the "parasites" are really out to do evil, they just are what they are. I would suspect using visualizations to help them move on could be useful. Suggest that their better answer would be to evolve some, find that they DO create and maintain their own energy, and that once they do that, a whole new world opens up to them, a world full of promise and possibility.

The Inipi, or sweat lodge, I always felt, was a way of cleansing the body AND mind or nonphysical self.

Personally, based on what I know of this region, Spring is one very special time here as things begin to come out in bud. My favorite time is when the redbud is beginning to come out and the forests have those small bits of green beginning to show themselves. You can still see through the forests, but there is the beginning of life stirring and trying to break out all over. My favorite time I think. Air is still cool, but you can hear the creeks and rivers running as they break through their crusts of ice. These days, however, I doubt we will even get ice to any significant degree if we keep having these warm winters. Drink plenty of water after your flight, SC.

I had a cool experience this morning. After meditation, I laid down on the sofa to relax. Usually, during this time, I get into my energy state, where my entire body becomes electrified and at some of my chakras light up. I was practicing doing this because my root chakra is particularly hard to take when it's on fire. So, then next thing I know I'm traveling through space, but it's my perception that traveling, I don't think I had an OBE. I come upon a planet, but I didn't realize it at the time. Then I'm in the sky looking down at humans doing their thing and I ride a bike in the park, etc. until my perception becomes weak and I return to here. I've read that there are other planets with humans, but I don't know if this was an astral or a physical planet. It was in color though...
What, me worry?

I awoke earlier than usual this morning, because I had to go a long way for a job interview.
As is usual, I decided to meditate before getting out of bed. The meditation is going ok when suddenly I realise I am not in this world. There are people walking around me- not sure if they are ordinary humans; they are humanoid looking, not alien. For some reason I don't want them to see me so I force myself back to the regular world where I am still sitting in meditation.
Shifting to another world sometimes happens during my meditations- but usually I merely observe and don't have interactions with other beings- this time was different.

Meditation first thing in the morning is most effective if you want to have paranormal experiences.

yeah, I meditate almost every morning, but not in bed. That's cool about your experiences though. Sometimes when I'm waiting to fall asleep, I'll become aware of other people around, making noises, etc. Sometimes when I'm listening to the delta or theta CD I'll hear people making noises. Last night, I had what I think was a pet or animal jump on the bed. It startled me of course, but I used to have this all the time. There'd be a jump, followed by footsteps across the bed towards me....yeah, I know that would freak some people out....I'm fairly certain this was a deceased cat or other pet or astral animal though...I just wish I could see them too!
What, me worry?

I had an interesting OBE this morning. Has anyone had the experience of hearing what sounds like a radio in their head? I've had it many times, and this morning it was a call-in talk show, and they were talking about the local commuter train service. I wonder if twisting my nose will change the station?

I had on OBE the other day, while I was napping after meditation in the morning. I crawled on my hands and knees through the dinning room and into the kitchen. I eventually stood up, but I got confused about whether or not my eyes were open, and I saw different things based on that. Oh well, more practice someday.

I tried listening to my Delta CD before bed, and I didn't take any OTC sleep aids, and the next thing I knew I was walking around the house out of my body after the CD was over! then I went down into the basement because the electricty wasn't working (duh!) and found some dolls and a guy with long hair and a beard. Then I came back to my body, and got out again, this time I was in the back yard, hiding from a T rex! I dove into one of the basement windows and it was dark and I asked who was there, and someone said "Homer", yeah right! Then there were some other people there and I started to go back upstairs when I went back to my body. I think those OTC sleep aids prevent OBEs. I've always been a light sleeper though. I'll try sleeping with out them again tonight.

Dirk - I'm going to purchase a set of those CDs, what would you recommend I start with?

I think that a lot of the OBE end up getting reported in the dream thread, because it's sometimes tough to tell the difference between an OBE and a lucid dream.

here's mine, I think... it may come under the heading of NDE, I'm not too sure.

I had an emergency c-section when I had my twins, and everything was pretty frantic, doctors were running everywhere and DH was flapping about in his too-small scrubs, with his beard poking out the sides of the mask. I was laying on the table, and I could feel them cutting me (no pain, just a very strange invasive sensation) when all of a sudden I was looking down on what was happening from above. I could see my insides, and all sorts of metal surgical equipment poking out. I felt really out of it, and just started looking around the room, and kind of going wherever I looked (hard to describe) I was looking at the monitors (which were set up behind my head when I was on the table) and was quite surprised to see my blood pressure was 220/160 - way too high! I went back to see first my daughter, then my son being pulled out of my body. I was surprised at how rough it looked - I always thought it would be more gentle than that. My daughter needed help to breathe, and I was right with her as they were putting tubes down her tiny throat. My son came out screaming. I was thinking about what to do next when all of a sudden I was back on the table, looking up at the anaethesthetist, who was asking me if I was alright. He said I was looking 'a bit spacey'

it is the strangest experience of my life, to date

Kate I don't know what it's called..
but at the age of 10 I had an emergency
appendectomy and after the needle went
in my arm the doctor was teasing me
asking if I was married etc.. waiting
for me to go under I guess.. I was 'out' !!
I blew up into a balloon and floated
around the room then went out the window..
I remember the doctor asking me if my
brother got married..he was in a year
before for the same operation.. by then
I was floating away and just laughed..
"I know I did not come here
to be comfortable but to grow"..

Quick question, I've just read all 3 of Robert A. Monroe's books. When trying to have an OOBE, do you see with your imagination? Or do you actually "click" outside of your body and see with an astral version of your physical eyes? I seem to have hit a brick wall and can't get out!

Bruce,

I haven't gone to the Monroe Institute, but have friends that have gone many times.

This is how I do it and it does work for me:

I just let go of my mind/ego and let my soul/heart drift outward. Over time you will be able to do it at will and stay there for as long as you want.

I would say that patience, practice, and having no fear of doing it wrong are the most important things.

Just my 2 cents worth....hope it helps you.
